Description: We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Ventura & Santa Barbara Harbor. You'll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at these true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the "small" menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the "long" menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals' favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.

Brophys is the place for Fish. The service could be better, but still okay. The atmosphere is the best. Happy Hour is a real bargain and is filling as a light dinner

The restaurant is located perfectly within the harbor and gives you a view of the marina. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor so the view from the windows and outside seating a great. There is lots...

On a beautiful day there is no better place to view the city of Ventura than the great deck on Brophy Brothers in Ventura Harbor. In addition to this great view the seafood is terrific. You should try to be there at Happy Hour 4-6, for half price appetizers and great drink prices but only if in the bar area.

Very enjoyable for the atmosphere. Large outdoor deck. Seafood OK. A larger space than the Santa Barbara location and I would recommend that one but a very nice view and popular. Stairs up to enter. There may be handicap access but call. Get the steamed clams with a beer, nice bar. If it's packed lean on the the open windows... More

Heard such great things about this place so finally had a chance to see what all the hype was about. First off we went at night during their happy hour during Thursday night football. They do have some great happy hour prices and the place was crowded. Was able to get two seats at the end of the bar. Our... More

Very nice location, good food, good wine, great staff. Very good experience. Nothing exceptional though. Perfect if you want to play it safe, a little plain if you're an adventurous foodie like me.
